Each student is registered and receives medication
Updates from Mayanza
We are excited to share with you updates from our recent trip to Santiago the week of July 23. The children have returned to in-person learning and this was our first trip where we could work with the school children since 2020. Guatemala's economy was significantly impacted by the pandemic and continues to sustain impacts from inflation. These systemic factors directly impact the nutrition and health of children in Santiago.
We returned to the schools to continue our anemia program where each child is measured for growth, screened for anemia and given anti-worming medication and daily vitamins. These interventions occur twice yearly and our health educators have continued to work in the schools each week since they opened for in-person learning in the Spring. Our next steps are to analyze the data we have collected to determine the baseline level of anemia and then work to decrease it. We plan to return in February to continue this project.
